Well... the ones I have are fastened to the trailer.

This might help...

Cool Closed End

Hmmm. It seems by the section way to the right of the link in the original post that the mandrel has a head on it and the rivet has a wide section to accommodate.
However, doesn't it still have a hole where water can get in and freeze thereby playing havoc with the rivet?

Curious minds want to know.

I would still seal the exposed end...

Neat video Lizbeth. Confirms the original link.

I discovered them in 1987 and used them on a project then. I always keep a supply around. I have found that they require more force to draw down, and seem to be physically stronger. I believe the ones I have used are made by Marston. In the 3/16 diameter they can get pretty tiresome with a hand setter. I have a pnuematic riveter. They work very well.
